Diamond Eyes

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Shinedown contributed this brand new track, recorded specifically for the Sylvester Stallone movie The Expendables, which was also used in the theatrical trailer. The song was released as a single on June 22, 2010.
When Stallone asks you to write a song for his movie, it can be a great career move for a band, as Jim Peterik told us in describing "Eye Of The Tiger."
The "fist-first philosophy" of the lyrics are in line with the movie's storyline of hired guns on a mission to a South American country, with the objective of overturning the cold-blooded despot in charge.

I don't particularly care for the movie this song was intended for but I do love the song itself. Brent Smith is an amazing vocalist and his band are rather talented as well. The lyrics to this song (as to most of their music) can be very powerful, passionate and meaningful to anyone and everyone as it can be applied to any situation somebody has gone through in life.
This song = WIN
